Yesterday my daughter moved into a new apartment. The past 10 years or so my husband and I have been moving her in and out of dorms and apartments. This is the first time we were not a part of the move. We have moved her during a heavy snowstorm, torrential downpours and extreme temperatures. Sometimes we used our mini-van and a car. Other times we used 2 cars with mattresses tied on top. There were some big moves where we used a trailer to move her belongings. Now she has a boyfriend who is helping her with her move. I contacted her and she said the move went well, but it will be a two day event.
For me, it’s a bit bittersweet. Believe it or not despite the circumstances we have lots of fond memories.
